Black History Month 2022

We celebrated Black History Month in October and Years 1, 2 and 3 visited Ridley Road market, where they received a very warm welcome from the stall holders and the children enjoyed purchasing items from the stalls. The classes learnt about the importance of Ridley Road to communities in Hackney and beyond and how it has played and continues to play an important part in Hackney’s history and heritage. Years 4,5 and 6 visited Hackney Museum and Nursery and Reception covered a variety of mini topics through activities from Hackney Museum.

Migration exhibition

Year 5 have been exploring animals and migration. The children have been finding out which animals migrate, where to and why. As part of the topic the children created a display of postcards all illustrated with an image of the migratory animal and an acrostic poem. The postcards were gathered in an exhibition and Karen was invited to attend! The thought given to the topic and the quality of writing was absolutely stunning and Karen was mightily impressed with the children’s work.
The topic was linked to their work in Literacy where they are focusing on Dame Floella Benjamin’s memoir, Coming to England. The children have also learnt what migration is and how people also may have to travel long distances. Their understanding of the reasons why people migrate for many different reasons was excellent. The children were able to explain the reasons might be economic, social, political or environmental. They also were able to discuss with great maturity why it is important to welcome people who have had to or wanted to leave their own country and to always show kindness and offer support.
Fabulous work Year 5! A very big, huge well done!
